Wirkola’s se­quel to his 2009 Nazi zom­bie hor­ror be­gins by pulling a Hal­loween II: pick­ing up ex­actly where we left off, then putting the hero into hos­pi­tal. There­after the MO is to ramp up the scale, as the un­dead stormtroop­ers attack a small town. This time they have a tank…

Pit­ting this rot­ten Re­ich against res­ur­rected Red Army sol­diers feels old hat given that Out­post III played the same card, and the ad­di­tion of a trio of Star Warsquot­ing Amer­i­can geeks feels like pan­der­ing to the US mar­ket. For­tu­nately, the phys­i­cal hu­mour hits the bulls­eye, with plenty of gory deaths that si­mul­ta­ne­ously make you wince and guf­faw.

Direc­tor/ co- writer com­men­tary; an amus­ing short; an ef­fects break­down. Ian Ber­ri­man
